Makin' a list, checkin' it a million times...

February 22, 2008 6 Comments A+ a-

I am going to go to training for 7 weeks...living with two other people in a dorm room setting (fun, fun, fun! not!) I've been making a list of creature comforts I need to have with me. Since I am driving so I can have a car there, I feel like I can bring anything I want to have with me, as long as I have the space in the room. I've already started "staging" this stuff in our guest room.

My "college-dorm needs" advisors, daughter, Casey and her friend, Abbi, helped me work on my list of things last night. Can you think of anything else I need to bring??

Bedding
Memory Foam mattress (spoiled, I know...)
sheets (my comfy flannel ones--it IS a twin bed, afterall...)
pillows (my own, thank you!)

Bath
shower caddy (since I am sharing with others, I will have to drag my stuff back and forth)
robe

Laundry
laundry bag
detergent/softener

Gadgets
laptop and cords
cell phone and charger
camera and charger
iPod and speakers
portable TV (it's a tiny one--with a two inch screen)
earplugs for phone/laptop/TV
fan (once again--it's a little one)
blow dryer (not provided)
lamp (gooseneck desk lamp)
curling brush/flat iron
reading lamp (one of the itty bitty book lights)

Toiletries
mirror (portable one--so I don't have to fight for mirror time with two other people)
motrin
shampoo/conditioner/hair products
make-up
Q-tips
Curel lotion
Dove soap
Amazing Grace (LOVE this stuff)
and all my other girlie stuff

Clothes
uniform shoes
stockings
plus the usual stuff

Other Stuff
lap desk (you know, one of these things)








tote bag/briefcase
baby wipes & Clorox wipes (can't live without 'em...)











ziplocs (who knows why???)
coffee mug (the one with Brendyn's picture on it)














case of water
coffee creamer (Carnation fat-free hazelnut)
extension cord
notebooks/tape/post its/stapler
photo book (it's a little thing I carry on my trips)

checkbook
two additional passport photos (for my Chinese visa!)
passport

What other essential can I not live without???

Hey Auntie,
I hope you like your room mates so that the seven weeks go by quick. Once you're done with that you can go back to the norm.
Love ya!!!
